Product Description
The Audio2Car range allows OEM car speakers to be used for aftermarket Audio equipment.
Audio2Car allow the car speakers to be used for audio playback from aftermarket Audio equipment. For a complete installation two or more item numbers are required. See description at the last page.
For a complete installation normally a minimum of two item numbers are required.
Audio equipment with build in mute function:
If the Audio equipment is equipped with a build in mute function two item numbers
are required. The 1st item number is the Audio2Car harness. The 2nd item is a
Audio2Car carkit adaptor.
Audio equipment without build in mute function:
If the Audio equipment is not equipped with speaker relays, a Mute-box from Kram
Drive & Talk range can be added together with a Drive & Talk carkit adaptor.
Speaker-function: This is achieved by connecting Audio equipment with build-in speaker relay function or by
using a Mute-box from the Kram range. This way the radio sound is muted and the sound from the aftermarket
Audio equipment is sent through the car speakers. You will achieve a perfect sound without interference from
the car radio.
Mute wire function: The mute-wire is connected from the 24 pin connector to the most used mute position for
the car model. This enables the use of the radios built in mute function. If the radio does not have such function
or the mute exists in a different connector than the ones used on the Audio2Car harness, the mute wire can be
found in a yellow fly-wire fitted with a bullet connector.
Power supply: All Audio2Car cables have an integrated power supply for the Audio equipment in the 24 pin
connector. The constant 12v and the ground supply are normally sourced from the radio supply. This way power
supply of most Audio Equipment can be achieved without cutting the cars wiring loom. The constant 12V wires
are red and the ground wires are black.
Audio2Car Carkit Adaptors
Several different carkit adaptors
are available for Carkits that
have a build in mute function
for 1 or 4 Speakers.
Please see the complete range
of Audio2Car carkit adaptors
at our website:
www.kram.dk
Ignition supply: If an ignition source is available in the radio connector then it will normally also be available in
the 24 pin connector. If an ignition source is not available a constant 12V source is connected to the Ignition pin
via bullet connectors. If a real ignition is required for the chosen Audio Equipment, an IGNIBOX item no. “I” can
be connected to create an artificial ignition. Or an ignition source found elsewhere can be connected to the
bullet with the blue wire. The 12V ignition wires in the Audio2Car cable are blue.
Aux integration
The 4 pin connector on the Audio2Car harness allow a Kram Aux solution to be connected. This will allow the
use of the car sound system amplifier for Music playback and thereby achieving higher sound quality.

3rd: Connect the car-specific cable. Disconnect the connectors on the radio / amplifier unit and insert the
Audio2Car harness between the connector and radio / amplifier unit. Note: Some radios may require a security
code to be entered after the power connectors have been removed.
4th: Check the configurations of the ground, ignition and constant 12v in the 24 pin connector. The red
wire should be the constant 12v, the blue Ignition/switched 12v and the black should be ground. The bullet
connectors on the ISO cable set gives you the possibility to switch the red and blue wire. If no ignition source
exist in the radio connector a IGNIBOX item nr. “I” can be inserted to generate a artificial ignition. If a real Ignition is preferred for the carkit please disconnect the blue wire from the bullet connector and connect it to a real
ignition found elsewhere.
5th: Connect the mute wire. The yellow mute wire D can be connected to the radios mute input. The three
most common mute positions is fitted with bullet connectors and labelled Mute 1, Mute 2, & Mute 3. Connecting
the mute wire is an option but may be required in some cars to achieve a full mute of all speakers. By connecting the mute wire you also achieve that the radio writes ”Mute” or ”Phone” when the phone is used and at the
same time pauses the CD-player. Note: Not all cars are equipped with a mute input.
6th: Check fuse size. The fuse on the Audio2Car cable should not be bigger than the ones used on the wiring
loom supplied with the carkit. The fuses on the Audio2Car cable should be replaced with a size similar to the
ones supplied with the carkit.
Note: Never exceed the Maximum Fuse size for the Audio2Car cable. See maximum sizes on the first page.
7th: Connect the carkit adaptor (or Drive & Talk Mute-box) to the 24 pin connector and connect the carkit
adaptor to the carkit.
Troubleshooting Guide
Carkit does not start up. Check if there is 12V between the black and the red wire and also between the black
and blue wire, in the 24 pin connector, when the car is started. If there is not 12v on both wires please check
the following:
1.
If there is supply on the red constant 12v wire but not on the blue ignition wire the car may require an
alternative ignition source. See installation step 4.
2.
Check that the bullets on the supply wires are properly connected. The supply wires are the red, blue
and black wires.
3.
Check for a blown fuse on the Audio2Car harness or in the cars fuse-box.
The carkit does not turn off when the key is removed from the ignition barrel. Your carkits needs a real ignition source. Please check the following:
1.
Is the blue ignition wire connected to the red constant 12v wire with a bullet connector? If this is the
case then there is no ignition supply in the radio connector. See installation step 4.
2.
Is there an ignition supply on the blue wire. There should be no voltage on the blue wire when there is
no key in the ignition. See installation step 4.
Not all speakers are muted. Try to disconnect the Carkit adaptor (or mute-box) from the Audio2Car harness
then turn on the radio and check the following :
1.
All speakers keep playing: This is the wrong Audio2Car harness for this car / sound system.
2.
Only a few speakers keep playing: The mute wire needs to be connected, see installation step 5 or this
is the wrong Audio2Car harness for this car / sound system.
3.
All speakers are now muted:
•
Carkits with 1 speaker mute: Some carkits can only mute 1 speaker channel with their build
in mute-box. This is normally stated on the label on the carkit adaptor for these carkits, else
please check the carkit manual. If a full mute is desired with these carkits, then this can be
achieved by either connecting the mute wire, see installation step 5. Or adding a mute-box
from our Drive & Talk range.
Carkits with 4 speaker mute: (or when Kram mute-box is used): The carkit is defective,
please replace the carkit.
Radio will not turn on or not working properly after installation.
1.
Please check for a blown fuse at the radio or in the car fuse-box.
2.
Remove the Audio2Car harness and connect the radio to the original car connector. If the radio is now
working replace the Audio2car harness.
